Over the past three years, artist John Raymond Mireles has worked to unite Americans across their geographic, racial, political, cultural and other differences by photographing individuals from all 50 U.S. states and publicly exhibiting their portraits. Mireles connects with his subjects up close and enlarges the resulting portraits to larger-than-life scale in order to encourage viewers to intimately relate to and empathize with their fellow residents of the United States of America. This exhibition contains 86 portraits of individuals from all 50 US states plus Washington, D.C. Included also are several portraits taken in the Lower East Side neighborhood of New York City where Mireles lives and works.

This exhbition will be on view through June 30, 2018.
